"...this duo takes the old-school showmanship of Cab Calloway and beefs up the catchy speakeasy jive with throbbing electronics, all the while adopting a heavy dose of neo-soul." -The Montreal Gazette

Welcome to the hottest club in town! Following a sold-out inaugural season, blackbox @ the edye is back with an all new lineup of under the radar jazz & blues artists. The Reverend Shawn Amos and the house band will perform at select blackbox @ the edye shows.
Voted one of ‘Hot 100 Unsigned Live Artists and Bands in the USA’ by Music Connection, PARLOR SOCIAL is fronted by Montreal-bred husband and wife team Dessy Di Lauro (vocals) and Ric’key Pageot (piano). With their library of original songs, Dessy provides sultry vocals that flawlessly encapsulate the spirit of Uptown’s early 20th Century cultural boom through the prohibition era yet offers a timeless approach that’s all her own. Serving as musical director and pianist/accordionist, Ric’key is either playing the squeezebox or tickling the ivories with an affable buoyant stride that promotes the infectiously festive atmosphere of their concerts. Their music pays tribute to the Harlem Renaissance classics, combined with a present-day sound.
